should seriously look at with tax reform is how do you replace the anti-poor, anti-small business tax. it is the first big hurdle to create a job. how could you design the equivalent for starting your own business? trying to reach out here and realize, every american could be premiership -- of .ntrepreneurshi passing so many laws and regulations and taxes that they kill the start up businesses in ways that are crazy. >> i have to jump in. thank you so much for talking about entrepreneurship. you were there, you were a part of that. there has been so much destruction to the assistance program. talk about rules and regulations. those are things your administration, when you were the speaker of the house, so many of those types of rules and regulations were built into the program, so much that they have not responded to the recession. it is only able to reach about 30% of the children who are poor in this country. an incredible increase in child poverty been. micro finance would may be a great way to insert into the system. if a woman is receiving cash assistance or food stamps and she h

's capitol. >> talk a little bit about the potential for more tax hikes. with house republicans talking about that and a leading democrat coming out saying that congress needs more money in order to reach the numbers they have to get to. he says there is really no way around that except higher taxes. here is charles schumer. >> $1.7 trillion in cuts. we've done $600 billion in revenues. you will need more revenues as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. we're going to do a budget this year and it will have revenues in it and our republican colleagues better get used to that fact. martha: promise, promises right? they will do a budget this year. we haven't seen one in how long? stuart varney the anchor of "varney & company". how many years has it been now? >> i believe it is 3 1/2 years. we go through the tax debate. we thought we got higher taxes on the rich and it was over, not so. senator schumer and fellow democrats are proposing yet higher taxes on the rich, more taxes on oil and gas companies and taxes on profits that american corporations makeover seas. so that is three big areas
is behind us when it comes to taxs. >> take a look at what is in the package in terms of spending. additional savings from medicare and medicaid in it. savings from agricultural sub is sidis. the president already signed a trillion dollars of deficit reduction into law and committed to more spending cuts but we can't just cut our way to prosperity. we have toasting to invest in things like -- we have to continue to invest in things like education and energy. he put reducing the deficit in a balanced way to promote jobs for middle class families and that is going to be his guiding principle through the negotiations. >> i want to ask you quickly about the republican idea. would you support it but with the caveat they are telling the senate you haven't passed a budget in more than three years and you need to do that so we have a baseline for negotiations. >> well, let's revisit what the debt limit actually is. this is about congress paying the bills for what it has already racked up. the white house has made clear that the president will take a look at the proposal. they said it is e
well in our society and those who are not suggesting he may not be done taxing the well-to-do on the heels of chuck schumer over the weekend saying that the senate will produce a budget and it will include higher taxes on the wealthy and republicans may not like it but paraphrasing they just have to deal with that. what do you think of that? >> well, i fundamentally disagree. i don't think most americans would say to give more money to washington to have washington spend their money is a way to help anyone. we identify with those who have not experienced upward mobility and want to help those who need a safety net and provide the relief and save the programs and give them some opportunity working through areas on education, hopefully, the white house will finally join us in some of thosests, and there are all kinds of things and workforce training and others that we can find common ground on depending on whether the mood today lasts. >>neil: do you get a sense they are leery, the dims, to go too crazy on spending cuts. the president told president obama he sees it as a h
because he's not going to do that. asking barack obama to not be a big spending high taxing liberal liberal, this is what we'll do we'll pass a year-long continuing resolution or national security, we'll pass a very short term continuing resolution for the department of labor, the department of housing and urban development, the department of the interior. there are dozens of places you can dramatically change spending without having to get involved in general crisis over the u.s. debt. >> mr. speaker i want to get your take on gun control, because as you know vice president biden is going to be delivering some 19 different recommendations to the president. also there is some controversy over the fact that the nra released a new itunes app that offers shooting practice and can be for children ages 4 years old plus. what do you think about that? >> we're having the discussions about gun control, over 500 people were killed in chicago last year the president's hometown. vice president biden doesn't want to go there, i'm trying to get the house to hold hearings
's already too much uncertainty in our tax structure to be doing this again in three months adds to the uncertainty. there are other thoughts as well. twitter available to you, too. stuart, you are up first. good morning. caller: this goes along with the war on weapons. what congress needs to talk about is the everyday city crime, the shootings among drug dealers, the prison industrial complex, what ron paul and ralph nader talk about. real solutions to the debt limit and taxation of illegal drugs, at least marijuana will reduce the deficit, increase revenue, increase jobs. decrease crime in half. host: so what do you think about the strategy from house republicans? what do you think specifically on this as a strategy? caller: i think it's just a big joke. without new revenue. they know. they don't care that we're going down the tubes. they don't care about sese quest ration. now they are talking about the construction industry is going crazy. we need more cheap labor from third world countries. like that's going to help. host: ela is on our democrats line from charlotte, south c
, a way they can pay taxes and drive cars and live as human beings. if you want to talk from there to a path to citizenship, i think we can build a consensus around that by the steps would be required. it would be terrible to say we are going to have made them legal and they would never have an opportunity for citizenship. i think that would say something we would not like. the ambassador and i could probably debate the strategy on how to get from here to there but there is no question what is needed immediately is legalization and a path to get to where we would like to be. >> then you talk about the difference between now and 2007? are you more hopeful this time? >> i believe, there have been more people coming out in favor. there are people who have moderated their stance on this from six years ago and i think part of that is an understanding that no action is very bad for the country. i would also like to say, because i believe you have an asian background, the question about the future flow is excellent. this is not just about hispanic immigration, or undocumented immigr
is a tax credit that was part of the economic stimulus originally, he sought $500 and i think ultimately, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking a
worries about higher taxes. consumption makes up 70% of the u.s. economic growth. the debt ceiling debate, presidential report card and quiet market rally. what does it mean for you money? joining us right now, jared bernstein, center on budget and policy priorities and chief economist to vice president biden. also with us, russ koesterich. thanks for joining us. >> thanks, maria. >> russ, let me kick it up with you. a pretty good rally. on thursday the s&p 500 hitting yet another five-year high. is this rally for real? do you think it's sustainable going forward as we continue through this earnings period? >> i think in the short term, it is. i think we're probably going to hit a road bump in february. the reason i say that is we've got a lot of flows coming into the market early in the year. people were nervous in december. they're coming back in to stocks. that's a good thing over the longer term. we do have some issues coming up. the debt ceiling obviously one of them. the second question is we start to get the economic data. how big of a hit from the tax increaseses, payroll tax holi
and the republicans in formulating that tax reduction legislation led to a budget surplus is the touchstone for success in working with the opposing parties to fulfill a president legislative agenda. clinton insightfully appointed erskine bowles to represent him in negotiations with congress. bulls great talent for bargaining was important in reaching the president's legislative agenda. but this is followed by the same house of representatives voting to an each bill clinton, obviously an extreme example, but the age-old conflict between congress and the executive branch of government and get bill clinton was lifted, only seven were elected presidents who were successful. there are lessons to be learned from the clinton's second term that might offer guidance to obama where he reelect me. some of the president to face hostility from congress feel the majority of their own party included washington, jefferson, monroe, grant, theodore roosevelt, johnson and bush. andrew jackson was censured by the congress controlled by democratic party. he never forgave. franklin roosevelt had a constant batt
, pay taxes, do all the other things. we transferred one of our cars to one of our sons here recently. we had to go through the motor vehicle department transfer, whatever. why somebody should be able to go into a gun show and buy any kind of a thing without any kind of the background check you might have otherwise, at least -- i -- at least not an enforceable one, i can't understand that. i really can't. i think we should have stricter background checks. i think they should be real ones. if you have the restraining orders on you, other things, we ought to be able to do that. i realize every state's different. vermont has virtually no gun laws. you can carry loaded concealed weapon in vermont this afternoon if you were there with no permit. we also have one of the lowest crime rates in the country but not because of that. we are as a society we are very law-abiding, but would that stop somebody who is mentally unhinged from going out and using a gun, knife, or anything else to kill people? no. the president's right when he says there are a whole lot of factors involved. i'm anxious to
that they plan on fighting this president very aggressively on spending, tax issues, even though they seem to be getting a little bit of round on the debt issue. postponing it for another three months. i do not see a lot of kuba going on here. >> no. we are hearing lots of things. lower court nominees. i talked to a number of republicans. they will fight on issues of spending and debt and debt ceiling. they are not ruling out. democrats have a ten-point advantage, 55-45. you only need 40. there could be a real showdown if the republicans stick together. they say they are not in the mood to, essentially, they say compromise on things that are poor principles for them. they are more geared up to fight and take on some of these legislative battles. for the next four years we will see. we will have another midterm election that could change the makeup of the house and senate again. that will have a big impact on his last two years in office as well. neil: we are just getting a shot at sasha and melia, the president's daughters. they have grown in the last four years. and his mother in law. thi
at 19 for senator hatfield, i had the very good fortune to be assigned to the tax reform act of 1976. and then i had the even better fortune that it came up on the floor of the senate. so during the many days it was before this body i sat up in the staff gallery and watched as amendment after amendment was raised and debated on and voted on. there was no camera, no email, the member of the senate team that was responsible for it would run down from the staff gallery, intercept your senator, explain what the issue was, what had been said about it, what folks back home thought about it, what the set of motions had been done on it, and it was a legislature at work. and rarely, rarely did the thought that anything would not be decided by 51 pass the minds of the senators. that was something observed, that objection to 51 was reserved for very special occasions, very rare occasions you might do once or twice in your career. i do -- i do feel like the conversation we have before us is so important, and i thought i'd put up this chart. this just dramatizes -- and my colleague can see it --
three weeks. one was on sandy, the other was on raising taxes. in both cases obama had a bipartisan majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to f
recovery already has. with that will come a gush everywhere of tax receipts which will help of offset deficits and reduce the need to borrow so much money that in time these things will take care of themselves and moreover -- >> >> bill: wait, clearly the report says to him because he is the leader of the nation you must cut and reform entitlements, u. must do it. no matter what happens with the economy and no matter what happens with the tax receipts, you have to do that bus it's unsustainable that the country can continue to spend as much money as it's spending on these entitle wants, medicare social security, social fabric, all of that he knows that. i'm saying in my heart he is rolling the dice with the future of every single american. every one. because of his, i guess, place in history would it be. he wants to be with dr. king on the mountaintop. but he is rolling the dice because he has got to know the danger is he walking into. bill, you have a point. i would say that the way that people like this president look at this problem that has to do with spending and debt is that we
the extension of the bush tax cuts, raising the debt limit, and the potential of automatic cuts in spending. necessity of resolving these issues is what chairman frank he refers to as the fiscal cliff. -- chairman bernanke. it's likely the decision will be given brief extensions so that the next president and congress will be saddled with making the decision. as a second term president, obama would face obstacles rarely experienced by a chief executive returning to office. where he would face sizable numbers of members of the senate and house, whose state they will not compromise. these present ominous clouds on the horizon for a second term for obama. other lessons that obama and the electorate can learn from the experience of presidential history that might give guidance for the resolution of this concern. first, however, it would be helpful to view obama's background in the customary evaluation of him. his opponents and some of his supporters ask, does barack obama have the leadership skills, experience, cultural background and temperament to deserve a second term as president of the uni

be in the form of tax cuts. a lot of democrats are going to hate that, but republicans like tax cuts, and we can just get everybody on board from the beginning." >> narrator: he was told right from the start the stakes couldn't be higher. >> this is the first of a series of tests. and if he failed this one, what would it say for his administration and his ability to deal with all the other challenges we're going to face? >> president obama promised the american people he would bring bipartisan solutions... >> narrator: he decided to make a symbolic gesture: he'd come to them. >> mr. obama is hoping for support from both sides of the aisle... >> narrator: take his proposal to the republicans on their own turf. >> he'll try and sell his plan to the republicans... >> narrator: he headed right for the meeting of the republican caucus. >> it's a rare day when the president goes to the capitol to meet only with members of the other party... >> hello, everybody. how are you? >> he spoke extemporaneously about the stimulus. he walked us through it probably 15 or 20 minutes, just his thought process and
. >> jared, is there a realistic prospect for something that could respectably be called tax reform or is that simply an exercise to raise a little bit more revenue? >> more of the latter than the former in my humble opinion. it's great they're all getting along today as hampton was telling us, but the idea of very deep tax reform seems pretty difficult given the disagreements up there. on the other hand, you were mentioning this earlier and i agree, the deal will involve both revenues, probably from the tax expenditure side, and spending cuts, and as has been said, the president has significant spending cuts on the table. >> corporate tax reform? >> possibly, but i'm not sure -- that again is going to be lower rate, broader base. i don't know if that's real massive tax reform. >> a second coming out for the obama daughters who have grown up before our eyes. >> people say that the president looks older. those girls look older than they did four years ago, and they, of course, have grown up in the bubble of the white house. >> in percentage terms they've gotten older than he has. >>
, the president signed into law. >> there will be no more tax-funded bailouts. period. >> years of spending added up and the debt ceiling talks of 2011 led to a budget standoff between democrats and republicans who had taken back control of the house in the mid-terms. >> is there a risk that the united states could lose its triple-a credit rating, yes or no? >> no risk of that. >> no risk. >> the debt ceiling was raised in august, the political fight and the spotlight on the count row's deficit and debt problems led s&p to downgrade the u.s. credit rating for the first time in history. >> geithner steered the major economic moves in the first term, now he's stepping down at treasury. the pick to replace him is jack lew, who has established a close relationship with the president. he is know chummy with the republicans on the hill after the debt ceiling negotiation. for that reason and other, his looming confirmation hearing could be bumpy. but if confirmed, lew will likely be dealing with the top issue in this second term, how to get the economy moving and addressing the count re's long-term fisc
. so more invasionive in terms of taxes, which clearly is happening. and less alienled on whgned on about it. should government tax harder or should spending be cut harder? not only is there no agreement, but the democrats now are saying, listen, forget the debt ceiling. let's get rid of that silly little thing. but do we actually need a budget? >> so we're learning that we may finally get a budget for the first time in what, three years? significant, though, because these are just templates. >> i great, they are templates. but letting go at a time when the debt is compounding is worrying. however, having said that, you can get worried about that as a market participant, but as long as the federal reserve has open ended quantitative easing, nothing is going to happen from the long end. >> from a market point of view, we were talking about allen capper about this last hour. but from a market point of view, the best outcome is something that lowers the long-term debt outcome. but we keep get ago worsening of the long-term debt profile and a hit to the near term. that is a mix that
the aisle and got tax cuts for everyone even though the united states senate switched majority control from republicans to democrats in may of his first year in office. then he worked across the aisle to get education reform done. it can happen, but it takes a president who is willing to be presidential and really lead rather than just demand. >> eric: do you think he can take a page from george w. bush. what did you advise the president at that time and what lessons from that experience that president obama can take as he enters into his second term? >> president bush had the advantage of being a governor where he had to work with other people on the other side of the aisle. he did that successfully in texas. when he got to washington, d.c. he was committed to govern the country, not just the one that demanded change. he wanted to work with the democrats and republicans to bring change to reality. he did a pretty good job of it. very first meeting that george w. bush had at the white house with people outside were leaders of the democratic party. he brought in some of the gray beards of th
at that conference yesterday. it's the new iteration of the president's campaign operation. it is a tax-exempt group. it can accept unlimited donations. it does not have to disclose its donors, although the president's new organization says it will. it says the main purpose is to mobilize support for the president's second term policy goals. this is something new. after president george w. bush won reelection in 2004, he did not have an entire campaign structure at the ready, millions of supporters strong mobilizing behind him and raising money for him to achieve his second term goals. president clinton didn't have anything like that when he was elected to a second term. no president has had an independent group do that. but barack obama now has that. his election campaign has been turned into an independent group. the chairman of the new group will be a man named jim messina. he is not exactly a political lightweight. his last job was in fact running president obama's 2012 reelection campaign. to have jim messina in charge of this thing means this is not a place where emeritus your friends to keep
the california's budget picture is ing a lot rosier. >>> governor brown's prop 30 tax measure is in effect in california's budget picture is looking a lot rosier. >> it does, but there's some question now about how the governor got it top billing on the ballot. here's melissa griffin. an appeals court has ruled on a sneaky move by the governor. >> exactly. there's a reason why his measure was the top of the ticket. and molly monger's competing tax measure was far down on the ticket. and they revealed it was a abuse of power. generally the conventional wisdom is things at the top of the ballot have a better chance of passings, the further down they get on the ballot, they are more likely to vote no or not vote. how do we decide what order things go on the ballot. traditionally it's been determined by who gets their signatures in first. in last year's election, the pta backed income tax for education got their signatures in first so they should have been at the top of the ballot. jerry brown was in a pickle. he needed his prop 30 on the ballot and needed
his speech as a kind of a call to action. from climate change to the tax code, he promised reforms. >> our interests compel us to act on those who long for freedom. >> every word was meant to reinforce a progressive agenda. >> our agenda is not clear unless everybody is treated equally under the law. >> the theme of racial and sexual equality was front and center, i think a lot of the second term will be devoted to a lot of other things. >> the president takes one last look noting he will not ever see this again. he will not be the focus of another 9000-person parade. he could barely stop himself from dancing until he got the chance to, for he begins what is expected to be a fierce fight with congress if he hopes to make any additions to his legacy. companybia's state oil is planning rebels for an explosion of a pipeline. it cost a small spill -- it caused a small sill. pill. a truce was declared. at least 60,000 people have been killed in the past six years. many police officers have also died in the line of duty. are leaving the force because they say it is no longer worth the ri
to get through immigration, gun control. he wants to raise taxes probably again. and the challenge on those issues is, those democrats are, the president doesn't have to run for reelection. but they're worried he'll drag their numbers down. >> what about the people going through the 2014 congressional elections, do they look to the president as being someone who will help them fund-raise? do they rely on him for that or do they move past because he's getting into that lame duck status? >> it totally depends on the member and what kind of house district they represent or the state. except for some extreme cases, democrats representing really red states or obviously republicans, usually when offered the help from the president, they say, yes. the money you get from it is really so good. it's the best find of fund-raiser you can have if you're in a tough race. we'll see if he's popular in a few years. if he's not popular coming up to the 2014 elections, i think we'll see a lot of members fund-raise with him maybe halfway across the country. >> we're going to change to debt ceiling now
to the needs of our time. we must harvest new ideas and technology that we make our government, revamp our tax cuts come reform our schools, and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder and learn more and retire. but -- and reach higher. while the means change, the purpose and doors. a nation that rewards the effort and determination of each and every american, that is what this we believe every citizen deserves a measure of dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care. we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and invested in the generation that will build its future. we remember the lessons of our past. twilight years were spent in poverty. a tablet disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that men matter how responsibly we live our lives any one of us at any of our times may face a job loss or a home slipped away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other do not zap our nation, th
is the republicans have agreed to raise taxes. they refused to do that for a generation. i think there will be a change on immigration. i think there's potential for bipartisan work on energy. the republican party's got to find its way back to some kind of restoration if it wants to get the white house back if it wants to control the senate again and move beyond the house. the movement they've had on the debt ceiling, democrats would call it gimmicky on some level. but we want to choose our fight difficultly. they want to push the president to deal with the spending problem this government has. you know what? all the polling reflects the fact that they're right. americans want a better economy. they want compromise. they want to cut government spending. so republicans are on the right track there. the question is how do they find a way to pressure the president in a way that's different tanhan what they've done. >> eugene? >> i think the question is whether the republican establishment, such as it is can bring along the rest of the republican party, the tea p
about every republican senator who voted for this. we have cut taxes with the republicans and cut spending with the republicans and democrats, on evaluatbviously a done a lot of other things but the american people have to be engaged in this and we did thorough research after the election and this is what they want to do, focus on balanced debt reduction, how to help the middle class, immigration, gun safety, energy and we want to be sure in the country these debates are not quiet debates in rooms in washington, exclusively. that there are people out there in the country pushing for action. >> chris: when the president talks in that clip about the republicans have suspicions about social security. suspicions about feeding poor kids, that is not true. >> listen, chris -- >> they have different ideas about how to save social security. not suspicions about social security. >> well, i think again, where common ground does exist on the need to reduce the deficit in a balanced way that will help the economy grow, amongst democrats on the hill, and, a few republicans, the barrier to prog
